AWS IoT Core extends support of the Custom Authentication feature to the AWS Mobile SDK for iOS. Now, you can reuse existing authentication mechanisms that you have already invested in to connect iOS devices to AWS IoT Core. You can utilize bearer token authentication strategies, such as OAuth, to connect to AWS IoT Core, and not rely on a X.509 certificate as the means to connect iOS devices.

Custom Authentication is available with other AWS IoT SDKs, and the implementation of the iOS SDK is consistent with existing usage. For more information, review the documentation. The SDK can be downloaded here, and you can review the Amplify documentation here.
